Stop Trump's Muslim Refugee Ban

President Trump's executive order slammed the door on refugees fleeing violence and persecution and suspended all entry to the United States from several Muslim majority countries.

Trump’s executive order was a strategic mistake for national security. It amounts to a Muslim ban, alienating our allies and encouraging our enemies.
